I had to read that one several times... what about

"No need to verify whether the driver is using the queues if it is the
default driver."

Is that really needed? I would have thought that the driver core's
klist usage would make sure that the callback would not be invoked for
drivers that are not registered anymore. Or am I missing a window?

Can we log the offending apm somewhere, preferably with additional info
that allows the admin to figure out why an error was returned?

(Same comments for the other changes further along in this patch.)
